Health Information Management (HIM) stands at the critical intersection of medicine, business management, and information technology. The Healthcare Management Degree Programs Guide recently named Pitt HIM as one of the top 25 programs in the U.S. The HIM undergraduate program is currently ranked 8th in the nation because it provides students with "high-quality" education and includes the most extensive internship requirements -- four full semesters -- of any other program.
Pitt HIM also offers hands-on training, personal mentorship, small class sizes, access to renowned faculty and eligibility to sit for the Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) exam that qualifies you as a Health Information Management expert to all future employers.
